Ramadan 2023When is Ramadan is Starting in Pakistan - 2023

The first of Ramazan in Pakistan is expected to fall on March 23, 2023.

Ramadan is the ninth Month in the Islamic Calendar which marks the beginning of fasting observed by Muslims from dawn until sunset throughout the holy month.

It can’t be predetermined that how long the Ramazan will last; though, it stays for 29 or 30 days before it ends with the arrival of Eid-ul-Fitr celebrated on the first of Shawwal.

Currently, the Month of Shaʻban has been going on since February 22, 2023 as per the Gregorian Calendar and it will end with the advent of Ramazan.

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِیْٓ اُنْزِلَ فِیْهِ الْقُرْاٰنُ هُدًی لِّلنَّاسِ وَ بَیِّنٰتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدٰی وَالْفُرْقَانِج فَمَنْ شَهِدَ مِنْکُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْیَصُمْهُط وَ مَنْ کَانَ مَرِیْضًا اَوْ عَلٰی سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ اَیَّامٍ اُخَرَط یُرِیْدُ ﷲ بِکُمُ الْیُسْرَ وَلَا یُرِیْدُ بِکُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُکْمِلُوا الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُکَبِّرُوا ﷲ عَلٰی مَا هَدٰکُمْ وَلَعَلَّکُمْ تَشْکُرُوْنَ

(البقرة، 2: 185)

“Ramaḍân is the month in which the Quran was revealed as a guide for humanity with clear proofs of guidance and the standard ˹to distinguish between right and wrong˺. So whoever is present this month, let them fast. But whoever is ill or on a journey, then ˹let them fast˺ an equal number of days ˹after Ramaḍân˺. Allah intends ease for you, not hardship, so that you may complete the prescribed period and proclaim the greatness of Allah for guiding you, and perhaps you will be grateful.”

رمضان کا مہینہ (وہ ہے) جس میں قرآن اُتارا گیا ہے جو لوگوں کے لیے ہدایت ہے اور (جس میں) رہنمائی کرنے والی اور (حق و باطل میں) امتیاز کرنے والی واضح نشانیاں ہیں، پس تم میں سے جو کوئی اس مہینہ کو پالے تو وہ اس کے روزے ضرور رکھے اور جو کوئی بیمار ہو یا سفر پر ہو تو دوسرے دنوں (کے روزوں) سے گنتی پوری کرے، ﷲ تمہارے حق میں آسانی چاہتا ہے اور تمہارے لیے دشواری نہیں چاہتا، اور اس لیے کہ تم گنتی پوری کر سکو اور اس لیے کہ اس نے تمہیں جو ہدایت فرمائی ہے اس پر اس کی بڑائی بیان کرو اور اس لیے کہ تم شکر گزار بن جاؤ۔

The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee as well as Zonal and District Ruet-e-Hilal Committees will meet across the Country on March 22 evening for sighting of Ramadan moon.
